Title: 2021 Minnesota Power Clay Boswell Plant
Post by: mrsfalcon on January 04, 2021, 10:02:23 AM
The Minnesota Power Clay Boswell falcons are nesting on a catwalk on the 200 foot level of Minnesota Power's Clay Boswell plant in Cohasset, Minnesota, next to the Mississippi River. Feel free to talk about them! We especially appreciate band IDs (band colors are fine if that is all you can get), egg laying times and dates, hatch times and dates, prey observations, and screen caps. If the cam is available, you can watch the falcons on this page: https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/minnesota-power-and-light-falcons/ (https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/minnesota-power-and-light-falcons/).

They had a meeting of the minds about 10:30 and mom spent a lot of time sitting near the edge or on the lip of the nest box off and on today.  She checked out the scrape a few times.

Boswel and Hassie  8)
April 9
6 am she inside
he perched outside on watch
7 am thot she laid egg but no.  It will come today  8)

Hope you got some sleep Nora, condolences on whoever passed
No IR here and no sound - but 2 cams - at least thats nice

This pair seems to be very nicely bonded, judging by watching them.
It does not appear they have been named so lets name them.
How do you like
Male - Boswel
Female - Hassie  (Cohasset)

I like names!

Post by: Nora in IA on April 12, 2021, 10:42:49 AM
That's wonderful! I looked until it got too dark last night, she sure looked like she wanted too.  Dad came around 6:00 and sat on the perch and she stayed in somewhat near the egg.

Nora, you got any guesses if Hassie is a young or old female?
I suspect she is older - but I am far from an expert
Bos is an attentive male.

I just ran across a memory in FaceBook that was a post about here on May 7, 2017 I thought was interesting.

"It was looking bad for a while. Don't know if there was a change in parents or what. They laid an egg earlier and no one took care of it. The other day mom laid a new egg and ate the old, bad egg. Now we have #2 and they're taking care of it!"

It kind of reminds me of what was happening at Great Spirit Bluff with an egg that was pretty much just left and then she got on a roll.

#2 is hatching 1953.  One parent came to the perch with supper, one parent was going out.  Came back and was helping with the shell and I THINK that was dad and mom came in with the supper and he took off.  Last look she was feeing the first one.

I usually follow this nest real close and have to admit with sorting and packing and keeping up on the happenings at Great Spirit Bluff I hadn't been in here for a while. WHY DO WE ONLY HAVE THREE????   I've checked stuff from when it got light this morning through several feedings until 1642 and can't find a fourth one???

They're sure aggressive eaters, they're pulling it right out of dad's(?) mouth.

FLUDGE
June 28, 2021
About 6 am one of the juvies slipped off and went down
It was at the outside edge of perch extending right from box
I thot he was trying for the roof - but went down
He is likely fine

The one female is just going NUTSO!

The second juvie is out
Must be a ledge box left outside - he kinda oozed out of cam view
I expect he'll return

The girl (?) notices she's alone - and follows him
Was it 2 males and a female?
Was banding posted?

Neither fell on cam - I expect both back
meanwhile - NO ONE ON CAM

5.30 pm and neither has returned yet - I kept checking

 :D 6 pm Dad shows up with bird, no one in box, he begins to peek around the side and one of the juvies *GRABBED!* it.  hahahahaa - no pic - I'm tired

Closing cam for today

Next morning I checked DVR and both crawled around corner back into box

DAWN - BOTH juvies outside

Must be a ledge outside on both sides
I watched them live
First male (?) exited on RIGHT side
Female exited on LEFT
I expect they'll return

LAST NITE

5.30 pm and neither had returned yet
6 pm Dad shows up with bird, no one in box, he begins to peek around the side and one of the juvies *GRABBED!* it.  hahahahaa - no pic of that

This morning I checked DVR and both crawled around corner back into box after I went offline

The RETURN
July 3, 2021

BOTH juvies outside all day, came in before dark
The female came in first and laid in wait for male
When he came in, first he stepped on her then he kissed her.  ;D

The first fledge apparantly spent the night with these 2
He was on the outer perch
NONE of the 3 is that steady on the beams
Could there be a roof they are jumping down to?  Was #1 down there all along?

Anyway - all 3 doing well

I scanned DVR about 3 pm - only Mom seen on cam  ;D

HAPPY 4th everyone

3 Juvies
July 4, 2021

Dawn - Fierce wind

#1 stumbles out onto extended perch and flaps wildly
The wind so strong it tried to blow him backward
He hung on - just barely - did he even hang on with his beek?

#2 exits stage right - hopping onto ledge there

#3 still snoozin

They crawl out from behind both sides of box late evening
And leave at the CRACK of dawn

I wish Amy'd post banding reports on this forum

Dawn I didnt see anyone.
Either they have fledged or are spending the night on outside ledge.
In this final pic you see 2 juvies.
One has been wind sailing - wings out, drinking the breeze
The near one jumped and flew off strongly - clearly fledged

They are banded
